Welcome to Granary Court; a stunning new collection of modern family homes situated in the idyllic village of Bourn. Designed around the pattern of an imagined farmyard and taking inspiration from the neighbouring 19th Century Grade II listed farmhouse, these homes take the form of a cluster of farm cottages and barn-style buildings.
Skillfully constructed, using materials in keeping with local historical buildings ensures the homes at Granary Court blend in seamlessly with their traditional surroundings and large, private gardens, some of which adjoin the picturesque Bourn golf course.
This outstanding location within this community-led village makes this the perfect place to set down roots and embrace modern village life.
